1965 Royalite SN#6571957
My first true love of a typewriter is this little 1965 Royal Royalite serial number RL6571957.

It arrived in a creme case, which was immediately painted deep red.

My good little brother then found a 1964 Royal Parade serial number PR5888135 but the works were damaged when being repaired.

The case from the 1964 Parade was removed, cleaned, primered, painted (egg yolk yellow) and shipped to an incredible artist in Toronto, Canada (Linda Arthurs) in 2019 for customization.

The beautifully repainted case from the 1964 Royal Parade serial number PR5888135 returned from Canada and was then bolted on the working body of the 1965 Royal Royalite serial number RL6571957.

The original red case from the Royalite is currently waiting patiently on a shelf, ready to be snapped onto another Royalite as soon as a willing donor presents itself.
